Re: Canadian buying a boat in California, which address to use?

California salt water boat registration (renewal) is bargain $20 for 2 years. It's hardly a big expense, or a big source of income for the state.

Re: Canadian buying a boat in California, which address to use?

Use mine, and I'll mail the stuff to you. Seriously, if you know anyone in California whose address you can use, it will be just fine. You don't have to prove residency or anything, and all the...

Re: Spreadsheet of PHRF ratings

phrfsocal.org has "ratings by manufacturer" as an option. Your local one may have some differences in any given boat, but there are a lot of boats here and it is a good source for comparisons. Take a...

I'm sure you have noticed that there are a lot more power boats in the Poulsbo marina. I'm afraid you are going to hear the "drone of a diesel" quite a bit boating in Puget Sound whether or not your...

Re: need help identifying a hobie type boat

This sort of question comes up fairly often. My advice is this: If it has a title is will state exactly what the boat is, if it does not then you don't want it.

Re: Fast boat w island queen berth?

Hunter Legend 40. 1984-1990. PHRF SoCal is 102. I don't have one, but always liked them. They do sail to their rating here, and have a large centerline aft berth.

Re: Coastal sailing without depth finder?

Dabnis made an excellent point. Get a fishfinder: they are cheap to buy (Walmart has them) easy to install, and use very little electricity. Another really big consideration is where you will be...

Re: Worst Sailboats Ever!

The MacGregor 25 was a sailboat, period. The 26x was the powersailor with a big outboard and more of a powerboat hull. I have never owned a 25, but remember looking at them when they were new. ...

Re: How do I handle insurance claims?

I did not mean to imply a morality problem. I was pointing out a very real liability problem. This sort of thing is not at all clear cut. The other party's insurer may not see fault as so easily...

Re: How do I handle insurance claims?

Re: standing rigging replacement

You are in San Diego. There are several rigging shops there, and you could probably find one that you could coordinate the timing with your mast removal/yard time. You don't have to do it by mail. ...

Re: what is this 21' trailer sailor?

As Ward H was saying, if the boat has a title it will say what it is. If it does not have a title don't spend another second even thinking about this boat.
